Answer

The neurologic deficits reflect the area of the brain typically involved, and stroke syndromes for specific vascular lesions have been described. Focal symptoms of stroke include the following:

  • Weakness or paresis that may affect a single extremity, one half of the body, or all 4 extremities

  • Facial droop

  • Monocular or binocular blindness

  • Blurred vision or visual field deficits

  • Dysarthria and trouble understanding speech

  • Vertigo or ataxia

  • Aphasia
